A Celtic Blessing, by Paul Field

Favorite Trees

I came across this Poem/Blessing in my morning meditations today. He is saying, in a lovely way what we need to hear today. I sometimes use this website to awaken my soul in the morning. http://www.northumbriacommunity.org/offices/morning-prayer/

Go peaceful

In gentleness

Through the violence of these


Give freely.

Show tenderness

In all your ways.


Through darkness,

In troubled time

Let holiness be your aim.

Seek wisdom.

Let faithfulness

Burn like a flame.


God speed you!

God lead you,

And keep you wrapped around His


May you be known by love.


Be righteous.

Speak truthfully

In a world of greed and lies.

Show kindness.

See everyone

Through heaven’s eyes.


God hold you,

Enfold you,

And keep you wrapped around His


May you be known by love.

    I love this meditation. I was just reading it in my copy of Celtic Daily Prayer. Book Two and pondered who was Paul Field who wrote it? A pilgrim like us? I googled it and landed on your blog site 🌼. It does not appear you have blogged for a long time so now I ponder about you, backfromtheborderlands.

    • Thanks for visiting my blog site. That is where I found this beautiful meditation too! I write semi frequently you can scroll through and see if anything catches your eye.
      A fellow pilgrim.
